Postal ancestors

The Post Office has been a British institution for centuries. Using our new record collection, you can find out if your family had a hand in its long and storied past.

Our Postal Service Appointment Books, 1737–1969, trace your postal worker ancestors from the days when messages were delivered individually on horseback. Letters were charged by the distance a horse had to travel, and it could take a week to reach a recipient at the other end of the country. for more click here
